I was going down the road at about 45 in my 1996 S10 when it just quit
running. I am lucky I got it to the side of the road before getting ran
over. Tried to restart it. Its cranking sound is different now. I don't
here the compression strokes. Would not fire at all.
I am assuming the timing chain has either jumped a gear or broke. Its
cold so its not a today project. Or could this be some kind of tensioner
problem. I thought the 2.2 was not an interference engine. Is this true?
Otherwise, i suppose its straight to taking the head off.
What are the issues with timing chain tensions on the 2.2?
What special tools are required? DO i need to pull the harmonic balancer
as well as the cam gear? All insight before the tear down will
